Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.

A unique study system (the micro-crustacean Daphnia) is used to identify the mechanisms of adaptation to environmental change. These include epigenetics enabling phenotypic plasticity that may precede and inform the genetic fixation of adaptive traits.
